AR platform trigger

It's easy to install for sure, the easiest. Everything about this trigger is fast, short and light. It feels more like a switch than a trigger and a very low resistance switch at that. There is virtually no reset, to a point where you might think it could be faulty at first. The break is quick with zero creep, super light and as crisp as possible. This is not a trigger I'd want on any defensive rifle because it "wants" to shoot and I've also fired off a few accidental double taps which isn't something I'm prone to doing. Also, some of my crappy steel case ammunition seems to reject this hammer's effort at igniting them. Still, this is a fun trigger that's a joy to shoot at the range but my advice is to keep it there especially if you have ammo with harder primers.

At this price point I like the CMC drop in trigger a little bit more, if you're looking for a single stage drop in. If you are looking for the best all around trigger at that price point the Larue MBT is the best deal.

Yep, I put one in my last build and one in my moms (dont laugh). In my opinion its a really nice drop in single stage trigger. Easy to install and both sit right at 3.5lb pull weight.

I went with the LaRue MBT as well, found it for $89 online with a link given to me by a forum member. Might be a little tougher install but even for a complete rookie like me it was still quick and simple. I'm not sure you could ask for a better, cleaner break....

I like a drop in trigger. One that does not need any tools or parts removed to service.

Most mine are SSA, S3G or SSA-E Giselle triggers.

Aside from that many USGI or other match triggers.
CMC is also great but as stated got to take parts off to clean and service. They are good but not my number 1 go to.

That’s why LaRue had to drop the price to 89, the price used to be much higher but could not directly compete with the “G”. It’s a good trigger for the money, certainly better than a factory mil-spec trigger.

From what I've read, the only reason LaRue got into the trigger business is because he and Mr. G got into a pissing contest over some business arrangements and some personal comments that followed. Mr. G apparently thought he was the only one that could make a decent AR trigger and LaRue showed him that not only was it not too difficult, he could do it better and sell it cheaper.

LaRue's trigger was selling well enough at the introductory price but LaRue decided to make his point just a little stronger by reducing the price ..... twice. If you were paying attention over the last 5 years or so, G triggers were hardly ever sold at a discount until LaRue got into the business. Now, it's not uncommon to find them "on sale" and it's my understanding G trigger sales have still taken a hit. Mr. G better hope Larue doesn't decide to expand his SKU's beyond the one 2-stage offering they have.

If you frequent www.ar15.com for any amount of time, you'll find out that LaRue makes world class AR mounts and other equipment. The other thing you'll find is that Mark LaRue is a world class pecker head. At one time he was banned from posting on some of the forums there, even tho he's a site sponsor. He frequently picks fights and doesn't take constructive criticism very well at all. It's very entertaining sometimes :)

That said, I've had a lot of AR triggers. I think the LaRue trigger is on par with the RRA National Match trigger. It's a step behind the Geissele SSA-E, but it's less than half the price. So it's a bargain in that respect.

I thought the problem was Geissele expanding into the rail and mount business and obtaining numerous Socom contracts over Larue. Either way both should serve well. Carry on.

Yea, that was essentially the issue. LaRue sold a ton of G triggers (making G a lot of money) and he never felt compelled to dabble in the trigger business ... even though he was more than able to do so. So, when G decided to get into the mount business, LaRue just returned the favor.

Hey, believe me I get it .... it's a free market and this is just business on some level. But, it is what it is and how LaRue chose to make his point is not my concern. I do business with him solely on the basis that he makes a quality product and backs it with extraordinary customer service.
